User Review: White Box Stove
Price Paid: $20
I received this as a Christmas gift. I was looking for an ultralight alcohol stove, and the White Box looked great. Received right from White Box.
I use a Primus LiTech 1.5L kettle (7 5/8oz) with it. The stove weighs 1 oz., the wind screen and heat shield weigh 1 1/8oz., the small priming pan I use weighs 3/8oz, for a total of 2 1/2 oz. without fuel.
The Heet fuel I use weighs about 1oz. per 1oz. of volume. I needed 2oz. of fuel to bring 48 oz. of water to a boil in the kettle. The temp. was 32F., and there wasn't any wind.
I poured a smidge of fuel into the priming pan, the remainder of 2 oz. into the stove (you could still add more fuel to the stove if needed...up to 3 oz. capacity). It blossomed at 1:08, boiled at 15:03, and burned out at 15:50. If it was windy I would have had to add more fuel.
It isn't a race car and you can't simmer with it, but it sure is ultralight for boiling water. The stove is rock solid, silent, and very stable. If you are stealthing then this might just be the ticket. I have just about every stove that you can think of and love this White Box as much as any other of my fav's.
